I just talked with Scott Smith at Superior Canoes. The deck of the Superior Expedition is done, and he's setting up to do the hull. Hopefully, we're looking at a completion about the end of February. You can still see a picture of one of Ibi's sisters on the blog entry for Nov. 23, 2010, Boat of Choice. Color me excited!
We're going to drive up to Michigan to pick up the canoe when it's done. I plan to have some pictures for you when we get back. Scott's boats are custom-built, one at a time. He says he's gotten enough orders that he's backlogged and may have to hire some help. That's good news both for the economy, and for the paddling community.
